Its no secret that Gareth Bale isn’t wanted by Zinedine Zidane who wants to offload the Welsh winger. But Bale wants to stay at the Bernabeu. According to the Mirror, Manchester United is set make an incredible loan bid for the Real Madrid man, but have ruled out a £75 million fee to buy him. United believes that taking the 29-year-old on a season long loan would be best for the club.
So far Bale is unwilling to budge, and it remains to be seen if he’ll be interested in moving to Old Trafford on a short-term deal. United doesn’t want to service the monumental 480,000-a-week contract that the Welshman signed in 2016. I don’t see how this is possible, because why would United bring Gareth Bale to Old Trafford just for a season long loan when he earns so much money in one month. That will upset United’s plans to balance the books.
They are already paying a reported £500,000-a-week plus bonuses to Alexis Sanchez. So why on earth would they bring Bale to Old Trafford for only one season where they would have to pay him millions of dollars in one year alone that would put the club into debt and make our financial situation more precarious? This sensational report is far-fetched and I personally think just doesn’t make sense.
Also if United were really interested in buying Bale they would have to sell Sanchez and some other players in order for the Real Madrid winger to come to Old Trafford. It would also make more sense for Bale to be signed permanently than to sign him on a season long loan. He’s too great of a player to just sign him for one season. Because any club would like to get the most out of a great player like him on a three-year or four-year contract. Its better value for money for the club.
Manchester United are willing to accept between £60 million and £75 million for David De Gea
The Sun reports that United are willing to accept an offer of between £60 million and £ 75 million for David De Gea. The Spanish goalie would pocket £20 million if he goes to Ligue 1 team PSG. The Red Devils are desperate to sell De Gea now rather than lose him on a free transfer at the end of next season.
Also from the Mirror, Manchester United wants to offer new deals to Andreas Pareira and Jesse Lingard as the Red Devils look to rebuild a squad that was bitterly disappointing last season. I think this is a good move on Solskjaer’s behalf. Since Pareira and Lingard are the future of club its a great investment for United to keep them there long-term.
